Fort Dodge man lands back in federal prison for fourth time

SIOUX CITY — A man who violated the terms of his federal supervised release for the third time was sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment.

According to a statement from the United States Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Iowa, Matthew Brockway, 44, from Fort Dodge, received the prison term after admitting to multiple violations of his supervised release. These include several failures to report/submit to urinalysis, numerous uses of controlled substances, and failures to report as directed by U.S. Probation.

Brockway initially was sentenced to 180 months imprisonment in 2010 for drug trafficking offenses and was first released to supervision on Feb. 24, 2021. Less than a year later, on Jan. 27, 2022, Brockway’s supervised release was revoked for various supervised release violations, including new state law violations and he was sentenced to federal prison for 24 months. After being released a second time on Nov. 25, 2022, mere months later, on Jan. 9, 2023, Brockway was revoked again for various supervised release violations, including using drugs and sentenced to 11 months imprisonment. On Nov. 17, 2023, Brockway was released on his third supervision and has now been ordered to serve 30 months in federal prison.

Brockway was sentenced in Sioux City by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Brockway is being held in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the United States Probation Office.
